At about 3:20 Saturday morning Parkersburg Police officers responded to 7th and Lynn Streets.

A Sugars employee saw two 14 year-old boys sleeping in a van in the parking lot. Officers found their guardian across the street in Wild Suzi's bar.

Police arrested Robert Aguilar on two counts of felony child neglect.

According to the criminal complaint, Aguilar left his son and his son's friend, both in his care, in the bar parking lot for hours.

Officers found open beer in the unlocked car. The two boys couldn't contact Aguilar.

Officers later found him very drunk and unaware of the boys location.

Aguilar was too drunk to be arraigned in Wood County Magistrate Court. He was later arraigned by video from the North Central Regional Jail.

He's being held on $10,000 bond. More charges are pending.
